Submission + - Human birdwing flight recorded on video?-> 1

techfun89 writes: Man has dreamed of taking to the skies under his own power, with wings like that of a bird. One man, Jarno Smeets, may have done just that with his own engineered birdwings.

Take a look below at the amazing YouTube video, you see him get a running start then lift off the ground by flapping his wings flying for 100 meters. Smeets is a mechanical engineer and has spent eight months researching and designing the birdwings with his Human Birdwings Project.

So either this is one incredible moment for human flight, or its an Adobe After Effects gem. You be the judge
